I am re-posting this observation because I realized by further
consulting my starmap that I mis-identified this as M6 last night. My
original observations are as follows:
A nice cluster. Once I had figured out where it should be, I could
just barely detect it naked eye.  Covers about 1 degree, taking up
slightly more than the FOV provided by my low power EP. I counted the
stars visible in my high power to estimate about 100-120 stars visible
to me in this cluster.
